Tiny Minotaur Adventurer Guide

1. Entry

  • Book Online to reserve a time-slot. Slots are limited and first-come first-serve. Maximum of Four participants per session. 21 and over. NO EXCEPTIONS. We encourage participants who are open to a bit of fun and wont fail the Cape Test*. [*Cape Test: Owns or Owned a Medieval Cape/Will Enthusiastically put on a flowing Medieval Cape if asked.]

  • To expand on the Cape Test, The Tiny Minotaur is super open to medieval/fantasy costuming, DnD groups, pre-existing LARPS and folks interested in role-playing. We highly encourage LARPers to utilize the Tiny Minotaur as a setting in their current campaigns since the Tiny Minotaur is a pocket dimension---- accessible by an infinite amount of fantasy worlds with no set mode of magical entry. Rumor has it that Oakda once packed a bowl with Gandalf, made an Omelette with a Dragon Egg from Pern and punched a rude Witcher in the throat. 

  • After You have Booked, you (and your party) will receive the location of the Tiny Minotaur and a Docket of Information via Email. Most of it is simple rules of conduct for Space. Show up at your session date and time, sign the posted waiver before entering and PREPARE FOR RIFTING.

2. The Tavern

  • Once seated at the Bar, your Adventuring Party will be given your satchel of coins and are free to drink, chat with your party and chomp on a pickle annnd you can leave it at that: a simple hangout in a rad fantasy tavern. BUT if you are at the Tiny Minotaur with the intent to Quest--- you can probably convince Oakda to give you one of the Quests (aka: Marks) on the Mercenary Board. Oakda Malkuth is surly---but she's the Tavern Keep of the Tiny Minotaur for a reason and could potentially be cajoled into sending your party out into the Rift on a Quest! And like most annoyed Barkeeps, Oakda can be won over with a bit of time. The more your party visits the Tiny Minotaur---the more intricate the Backstory, Quests, Rewards and possible access to monthly campaigns!

  • In the Spirit of Immersive Environments--- we will not accept cash on site for gold coins. Participants will be able to ask Oakda for permission to discretely Venmo the Bank Elf for an immediate withdrawal from the Royal Bank of Karth in exchange for velvet satchels of coins. :)

  • The Tiny Minotaur is outside and unfortunately NOT very wheelchair accessible but feel free to message us to discuss your needs.

3. Questing

  • If your party is interested in Questing there are a variety of ways to get them: 

    • Directly via Oakda the Orc Tavern-Keep.

    • The Mercenary Board on the walls of the Tavern

    • An NPC traveler lurking in the bar

  • The Quests themselves are a mix of adventuring tasks; lost items, dungeon crawls, desperate missives from the townspeople of Karth requesting muscled aid, or requests from the random NPC lurking in the corner of the Tiny Minotaur. New Quests show up on the Merk board monthly and the more quests you do---the more inclined Oakda and other NPCS are to bring you some heavier lifting!

  • The majority of the Quests are located outside of the Tiny Minotaur Gates throughout the Rift (two blocks surrounding the Tiny Minotaur). All Quests are led by maps and the red X's indicated on the maps are interaction points. There is a strong bleed-over from Earth and the Rift but we encourage participants of Tiny Minotaur Quests to not interact with the plains-clothes denizens of Earth. (Aka: Don't bother people in the neighborhood who are going about their regular-degular business)

  • Sometimes your Adventurer Party will be pulled into Turn-Based Combat with an NPC ---reminiscent of a very chill DnD tabletop game. And yes...there is a gigantic D20. 

4. Covid Shite

  • The Tiny Minotaur is pretty serious about maintaining levels of safety--- The Tiny Minotaur is an Outdoor Open-Air space (with extra airflow from fans) and we ask for distancing, masks and common sense. Oakda will be gloved, and before, between, and after sessions, the space will be heavily sanitized. All tankards are disinfected (after use and prior to washing).

  • For participants we ask that you DO NOT COME IN IF YOU ARE FEELING ILL. If you have a cough, fever or any Covid symptoms, we ask that you cancel your booking or drop out (and let the rest of your party come instead). The Tiny Minotaur does not refund but we are happy to reschedule a rain-check session for you! This installation will be here for a looong time (so long as we stay community-oriented and think of the collective!)
